HIGHLIGHTS

This World Heritage-listed island paradise, 600km off the coast of Port Macquarie on the NSW North Coast, only accommodates 400 guests at any time. For the energetic, there’s the guided climb of Mount Gower (considered one of the world's best hikes) plus an array of water sports in the crystal clear waters. For a more relaxed pace, there are leisurely walks in lush forest canopies, snorkelling, swimming, and some of Australia’s best birdwatching. These one-of-a-kind experiences and a wide range of accommodation styles, sumptuous spa treatments, beautiful hotels and great restaurants make Lord Howe Island the perfect executive retreat.
